The dash diet is more of a healthy way of eating rather that a diet. You do not have to buy special diet foods and can get all the foods in your local grocery store. The diet is based on what is good to eat for heart health and being a survivor of cardiac arrest I definitely want to follow a heart healthy plan. The diet limits your intake of sodium and saturated fat which is good for anyone and not just those with heart problems or high blood pressure. It tells you which fats are good fats and which are bad and the plan is easy to follow. You may not lose alot of weight quickly but you will lose it as you are eating foods that are not full of fats or carbohydrates and lean more towards eating more fresh fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. I would recommend this to anyone because even if you are not on a diet , this way of eating is definitely better for your overalll health and well being. You feel so much better when you follow the Dash diet.
